Day 94: Breakthrough!

Posted by intrepidshe , in Happy Things, Healing Work, Crying 14 March 2014 · 148 views

Mar. 14, 2014 (23 Days Into Becoming):
 
I already said the following in a comment, but I have been crying (I can't believe that!) since I wrote it. It's really important to me and I decided to make it it's own posting.
 
I am realizing that opening up to you all here is the kind of communication I need, the connecting I have missed. When something happens to one of you, I feel it. I rejoice when good things happen and I feel angry or sad when you're hurting. 
 
Someone, my memory can't retrieve who, said it is more difficult to accept love than to give love. I have become vulnerable and opened my heart here. I am learning to give and to receive.
 
I can't find the words to express what this means to me, what you mean to me. Posted Image
 
I really am the Tin Man.



You are beautiful. This is wonderful! And i am beginning to know what you mean....

This is so purely true! I think many of us can relate to varying degrees. Thank you for coming out and saying so!

Finally, it is humbling and rewarding to learn others feel the same. It also makes me feel safe.

About Intrepid She

This is a moderated PUBLIC blog. This blog is a therapeutic tool I am using to help me get over my fear of doctors, which is made difficult by a history of abuse by them, to learn to grieve, and ultimately to integrate my dis-integrated heart.
